A little about me? Okay, my blog started as a 24 year old Business Grad & Working Professional who fell out of love with the conventional way of living. I had always done as told, the right A-level subjects, how to study for exams, the right degree subject to open me up to all possible and potential jobs. I’ve never been the top of the class but always fairly close. A’s and B’s at A-level in Business and Maths, 1st Class Business Management Degree, and what did it get me? A near 12-hour a day job in a B2B sales role where I devoted my hours of sunlight and darkness to recruitment and sales training. It was fun for a while, until it wasn’t. How could an imagination as curious and wild as mine be trapped in the cubicles of an office with no freedom to follow my own pursuits? Well the truth is, it couldn’t. As my mind wandered, my motivation did. I couldn’t pretend I was ready to help build somebody’s else dreams until i’d at least tried to follow and build my own. That’s what brought me here…on my voyage around the world, in search of something, in search of more.
The first blog was born in Niagara-on-the-Lake in Canada, but the truth is my dreams stretched a lot further than that. My plan was to travel, whilst living and working, in North, Central and South America, be it in hostels, teaching, or digitally. The start of my expedition was far more pleasure than business; I visited 16 US States in total (settling down to work only in San Diego, Cali for 2 months); and so the list goes…New York NY, Washington D.C, Philadelphia PA, Boston MA, Chicago IL. Then I journeyed up to Canada, and ventured through Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Ottawa, Milton, Niagara-on-the Lake, Calgary, Banff, Vancouver and Victoria, and…. back down into the States again (West Coast this time)….to Seattle WA, Portland OG, San Francisco, LA and San Diego CA, Grand Canyon NA, Las Vegas AR, Austin TX, New Orleans LA, Nashville TE, Charleston SC, and a brief encounter of Miami that was supposed to be a whole weekend but ended up being evacuated for a hurricane!
I waved and kissed goodbye to North America and moved on down to the Bahamas >> Nicaragua >> Costa Rica >> Panama >> Colombia >> Ecuador >> Peru >> Chile >> Argentina >> Uruguay >> Paraguay and then spent the last 4 months living and working in a hostel in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil……where to next?…. the rest of the world?
Feel free to get in touch for whatever reason – I’d love to hear from you 🙂
